Birthday Cake


So last week it was my birthday, and I had a lovely day and got given lots of lovely presents, but the one thing I was missing was a birthday cake …. I know, I didn’t get to blow out candles on a cake (but I did get taken to the HARDWICK with my family and got given a suprise pudding !).


Im guessing because I’m the baker in the famiy they expected me to Bake my own birthday cake, but I didn’t until the week after my birthday…

The cake that I made was a three tiered chocolate cake :- The bottom layer – oreo, The middle layer – Chocolate chip and The top layer – Brownie and in-between the layers a butter icing with a chocolate ganache over the top layer, topped with oreos. This cake was calorie galore !

I must admit I did give most of it away to friends and family, but it still didn’t last long.

This was a fun and very delicious bake. IMG_9904

Triple Chocolate Brownies

Triple Chocolate Brownies for my lovely friend Amy’s birthday because all girls like chocolate.

This is one of my favourite recipes and everybody loves them because they are chocolatey and gooey and then when you bite into the brownie you get chunk of white chocolate.  Mmmmmmhhh………………

The recipe I use is not quick as you need to melt the chocolate let it cool and whisk the ingredients for a long time as well as baking for 40 minutes and then I leave them over night so they become gooier.

I had thought about making fudge but went for the brownies.  When I told Amy it was choice between fudge and brownies she said no, chocolate brownies definitely.
